My current research focuses on contemporary poetry, especially Canadian poetry and women's writing. I continue also to work in fields of life writing (with particular interests in biography, biographical form, cultural histories of life writing, and experimental auto/biographies) and creative writing pedagogy.
I regularly teach courses in nonfiction writing, from introductory to advanced and graduate levels. I also teach courses in contemporary Canadian literature and culture, women's writing, theory, and (sometimes) Victorian literature and culture.
